So I've started making my Metro Scope. So far so good.
Right off I'm changing my version up a little. I'm going through a square quilt phase and if I add one more row of blocks I"ll get a quilt that finishes at 76" x 76", my favorite and perfect size.
Since I'm making 16 Metro Scope blocks, I paired up 32 pieces of my Persimmon fabric for the outer ring and corner squares.
This is my first block. Before I cut all the pieces of a pattern I make one inspiration block to make sure all the sizes and instructions are correct. This block is 19 inches, a big block. But it went together perfectly. You need to carefully read and follow the pattern directions, but there's nothing tricky about this block, it was a piece of cake.
So I've picked up several quilt along followers, (what's a parade without some parade watchers?) and some quilt along joiners. Here are the folks I've heard from that are joining, Lisa and Nicole have heard from some quilters too, let me know if you would like to be added to our list.
Vicky at LA Quilter is starting her project next weekend.
Kristen at Meadowbrook is going to start Metro Lattice as soon as her ruler arrives.
Diana is going to be sewing Metro Rings with a twist which is her third QCR quilt (Diana, send me a link to your blog or email address, Thanks!)
Dawn is going to start Dancing Churndash just as soon as the pattern is available. (Dawn, keep me posted, I don't have your email address.)
